Thank you!

Here's to all of you, my dear blogging friends.  May your step over the threshold from 2009 to 2010 be one marked with connection, joy, perhaps some quiet reflection, and anticipation of a healthy and happy year for yourself and all those you hold dear. 

Since we cannot celebrate the arrival of 2010 together, I have tried to create a little virtual New Year's Eve 'party' for us right here.  So raise your glass of sparkling water, wine or champagne - enjoy the fireworks - and beware, I am about to embrace you in a big bear hug!  There.  [[[ !! ]]].  Did you feel it?  A friendly hug full of respect and appreciation  for all you have contributed to my life in 2009.


  1. All the best for 2010 and thanks for inviting me to your blog party. I had a blast.
